The Meaning of the V
  • When Pat Hill became Fresno State's head coach
    prior to the 1997 season, he wanted to
    reinvigorate San Joaquin Valley pride in the
    Bulldogs. Because Fresno State is the only
    Division I football program in the Valley, a
    250-mile stretch in California's midsection from
    Bakersfield to Modesto, Hill wanted to make the
    Bulldogs the "Green Bay Packers of college
    football." As Coach Hill often states, Fresno
    State is not only representing Fresno, its
    representing the entire Valley.
  • This representation of the San Joaquin Valley is
    displayed in the form of a green "V" on the back
    of the Bulldogs' helmets. The green in the "V" is
    a symbol to the agricultural community of the
    Central Valley, which is the world's richest
    agricultural area in export dollars.
  • "The people of this Valley are of vital
    importance to the success of this football
    program," said Hill. "They help us fund the
    program, they give us unparalleled support, and
    they are going to be the big reason we take this
    program to a level where we are consistently in
    the Top 25."
  • Hill has also shown his commitment to the Valley
    in recruiting -- 45 of the Bulldogs' 104 players
    (43 percent) are from the San Joaquin Valley.

22 sky suites. The Bulldogs have sold out 12 of
the last 17 games, and during that time have
averaged 41,101 fans per game. Fresno State
football teams have combined to post one of the
NCAAs most impressive home win-loss records since
they first began playing at Bulldog Stadium at
the end of the 1980 season. Entering the 2003
campaign, Fresno State teams have won 81 percent
of their games on Bulldog Stadiums natural grass
surface, posting a 21-year win-loss mark of
113-26-2 (.809). Bulldog teams are 76-14-1 (.841)
in their last 85 games and since 1997, when Pat
Hill took over as head coach, Fresno State is
29-5 (.853) and have won 25 of its last 27 at
home. Bulldog Stadium was named the 23rd-best
college football facility in the nation by CBS
Sports line.com in the summer of 2003. One of the
most aesthetically pleasing football stadiums in
the Western Athletic Conference, Bulldog Stadium
in 1991 underwent a two-phase expansion project
which included the addition of more than 10,000
seats Ñ the stadium capacity now stands at 41,031
Ñ and the construction of 22 sky suites. Other
